Roya Derwish Postdoctoral fellow/ Doctor of Philosophy, Honours bachelor of Science

I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Krembil Research Institute. I received my Ph.D from Memorial University of Newfoundland. I love wet bench research, in particular I am interested in molecular pathways and interaction of proteins in cell differentiation and function. I love to go on hikes and enjoy cooking.
